seems silly to announce it! You'd think they would just start doing it! I wonder if they will make a TV show out of it like they did with the stolen bait cars,lol

I know! This is the third article I have seen regarding NYs plan to gps pill bottles. Now that potential thieves are aware of this strategy, they can cover themselves. How stupid is it to make this public knowledge?

Why dont they just have bottles of fake placibo type pills that look like the real thing? Whena robber comes in demanding pills the pharmacist gives him a bottle of the fake stuff? The crook would not know until he got home and tried to get high?!

I think announcing it was part of their plan so hopefully it will deter the robbers and not even have to use the GPS. Maybe someone will actually think twice after hearing this. Just a thought.

They must be making it public so anyone who is caught cannot say it is entrapment. There are ways around the whole GPS tracking. Just toss the packaging and pocket them.

that's what I was thinking. They are putting fake pills in the gps bottles anyway so the whole robbery would be for nothing. I know someone who just did 7 yrs for drugstore robberies. not worth it.

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.
